The Morse Wildlife Preserve contains more than 90 acres of land that was preserved to be wildlife habitat. It also provides an exceptional educational and recreational experience for hundreds of visitors each year. Forterra, Tahoma Audubon Society, and the Morse Force work together to help steward the land for today’s visitors and future generations.

The preserve started with a donation of approximately 50 acres from Lloyd and Maxine Morse. A private party purchased another 40-plus acres and then donated that land to the Tahoma Land Conservancy (now Forterra). Forterra owns the property, while the Tahoma Audubon Society provides educational programming and support. The Morse Force, a group of dedicated local volunteers, provides essential management and maintenance support.

The preserve is an exceptional educational opportunity to learn about five critical habitats. As you walk the trails, look for:

  • Dry Douglas-fir forest
  • Prairie
  • Oregon white (Garry) oak savanna/ woodland
  • Moist lowland mixed forest (cedar, hemlock, Sitka spruce and Douglas-fir)
